Introduction to "Nature Stories for Children":
I hope you enjoy this compilation of nature stories from two beloved children’s authors!
Beatrix Potter, with her gentle story-telling and beautiful illustrations, has been a favorite of children for generations. Raised in the beautiful countryside in Victorian England, she developed an intimacy with nature that found an outlet in her sketches and paintings, even as a young girl. Out of this love of and intimacy with nature was born her delightful stories of animals – which are a lot like the children who enjoy her stories! It is a special treat to any child to sit down with mom or dad to be delighted with one of her wonderful stories. I pray you and your children will enjoy the two stories from her included on this PDF, and that it will open up a new world of enjoyment for you!
Thornton Burgess is a master storyteller as well. Born in Sandwich, Cape Cod, Massachusetts, he was a conservationist and author of children’s stories. He grew up working outdoors for much of his youth, and this surely was inspiration for the bedtime stories he made up for his young son. These eventually were published, and his writing career was born. Burgess loved the beauty of nature and its living creatures so much that he wrote about them for 50 years. By the time he retired, he had written more than 170 books and 15,000 stories for daily columns in newspapers.
May these stories delight you and your children as you enter the world of Peter Rabbit and Jenny Wren!
